How Much is too Much to Pay For Sex

How much is too much to pay for sex?

No, I am not referring to prostitution. I am referring to the amount of money people are willing to pay in order to become someone’s object of affection.

A few weeks ago I overheard a gentleman complain about putting $600 in his girlfriend’s hands (an investment for him and her). It was a good investment getting the perfect hairdo, manicure and pedicure.

$600 is a huge haul of cash during this time of recession. Once you fork over that kind of money understand that you are making an investment. In this case the investment was supposed to be $600 down on some coitus.

Coitus or sex is never a guarantee in a relationship, especially if you intend on throwing a dollar amount on it.

Needless to say, the gentleman did not receive as much as a hug from the “love of his life” and he was livid because of it.

He was distraught describing his rejection. His pain was all too common. He was burned by putting a price on sex.

The gentleman’s plight raises this question – how much is too much to pay for sex?

Let’s all have a moment of clarity here. Everyone over the age of 12 has done something to garner someone’s attention.

We have done simple things such as stay up all night on the telephone, change our hairstyle and wardrobe. There are also those of you who have taken extreme measures – paying rent and mortgages, even bankrolling weekend getaways, doing so with the hope that your “object of affection” will repay you with, eh their affections.

You have described them as “gifts” and in the process of “gift-giving” you make the suggestion that there is no repayment necessary. Secretly, many of you desired affection.

We all have secretly wanted affection for our time and or money spent. That does not mean that we should expect it. At times we will be rewarded, but in most cases we will be rejected. Winning someone’s affection is purely a gamble.

How much are you willing to gamble is a personal choice.
